Marlborough Pinot Gris 2019

This New Zealand charmer smells as fresh as a spring morning. It exhibits lime and lemon aromas along with minerality and a whiff of peach juice and flowers. The palate offers lovely flavors of nectarine and tangerine, joined by a racy acidity.

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

This is an intense splash of citrus and lime, guaranteed to make you mad for Marlborough Sauv Blanc. A New Zealand wine using five different cool-climate vineyards that span the upper and lower Wairau Valley. Excellent paired with buttery scallops or fresh shellfish. Wonderful with pistachio crusted sea bass and mango coulis. Twist open, serve chilled and enjoy. – Naked Wines — 5 hours ago

Signature Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Was able to taste ‘17 & ‘18 side by side. Pale lemon with pronounced aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with herb and honeysuckle notes. On the palate flavors of mango, melon and grapefruit with lemon citrus and herbs, vivid acidity. Medium+ finish ending with a crisp mineral citrus tang. Nice! ‘18 a bit fresher and crispier. Tasting Sample. — 15 days ago

Signature Series Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Star bright pale straw. Abundant classic Kiwi nose of guava and lemongrass. Bright acidity leads the medium light palate of guava, lemongrass, and soft citrus rind. Finish is typically brief, but strong and a wee bit dark. The standard Marlborough has been aWkne Spectator “Best Buy” for two vintages running. The Estate ”Signature Series” kicks things up a few notches with elegance. Best as a sipper, it will still satisfy with rich “white wine” fare that can use a good cut-through. I’m having KFC, though fried/sautéed fish or seafood would be killer! Drink now. — 20 days ago

Private Bin Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Ripe cherry on the nose. Balanced fruit on the palette, along with a subtle spice and enough earthiness to keep it grounded. (Keep in mind, we have no idea what we are talking about 😛) — 11 days ago
